Hello everyone,

I like to know if someone have made ​​a comparison between these 2 blu ray Marantz players:


I suppose that the UD7006 is better (the 'ATB2015 is better the ATB1030), but the BD7004 in the used market can be found at a lower price 30% or less, since it is a model of 4 years ago.

In particular I would be interested to know the difference in terms of upscaling on DVD (I have no any blu ray disk for the moment) and in audio terms.

I can only listening in stereo (I don't have 5.1 speaker my room does not allow it) I would like to know if in this case (UD7006 or BD7004) should I use the DAC of my Marantz Pearl Lite SACD, as I do now with my current very old Arcam DVD player, or I could use the classic RCA output with blue ray (not sure if the difference is big).

The UD5005 seem to have a very poor upscaling, for this reason I don't take it in consideration.

There is someone who knows both these player ?
